Cookie Dough Truffles

I was introduced to these marvelous little treats last year at the first annual cookie exchange! They literally stopped me in my tracks when I took my first bite of them. A year later I still remember my mom's facial expression when I gave her one of them to try. Her eyes got super big and with her mouth still full of truffle she mumbled "We NEED to make these next year for Christmas."

Well this past Saturday when we got our first snowfall and I was trapped inside, what better thing was there to do than spend the day in the kitchen baking! The first thing on the list to make were the ubberly delicious cookie dough truffles!

Cookie Dough Truffles

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups flour
14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips (I used about 1/2 cup)
1 1/2 pounds semi-sweet chocolate candy coating (I think Baker's Chocolate works the best)

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add flour, milk, and vanilla and mix until well combined. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.

Shape into one inch balls and place on wax-paper lined baking sheets. Loosely cover and refrigerate for one to two hours or until firm.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate candy coating until smooth. Dip balls in coating and place on wax-paper lined baking sheets. Refrigerate about 15 minutes or until firm.

Store in the refrigerator. Makes about 5 1/2 dozen delicious truffles!

Now to just wait and see how many of these are actually left by the time Christmas rolls around! I am storing them in the downstairs refrigerator in hopes that I will forget they are down there, obviously I haven't forgotten yet! :)

Enjoy the Sweet Escape!
